Glass and Ceramic Vessels The Gospel of Philip



Glass and Ceramic Vessels
Glass and ceramic vessels are both made with fire. If glass vessels break, they are redone, since they have been made through breath. But if ceramic vessels break, they are destroyed, since they have been made without breath.

Glass decanters [those individual spirit consciousness who have been refined in the fire] and earthenware jugs [natural men without faith] are both made by means of fire [both have a conscience that burns in their hearts]. But if glass decanters break [those who keep their faith even unto death], they are made again [raised up incorruptible], for they came into being through a breath [Yahushua has said unto these; “receive ye holy spirit” so these have already been counted as righteous in the flesh]. If earthenware jugs break [“die as men” (in their sins)], however, they are destroyed [the body returns to dust and the (individualized) spirit goes back to the Father], for they came into being without breath [these did not receive holy spirit and union with the seed of Christ]. (Philip 37)

Glass containers and pottery containers are both manufactured by means of fire. If glass containers are broken, they can be melted down and remade, for life was breathed into them when they were formed. If pottery containers are broken, they are destroyed, for there was no life breathed into them when they were formed. When mortals were organized, the Elohim breathed into them the breath of life. If they are broken, they can be melted down and remade, for they are living creatures which have always existed and will always exist, in one form or another. They can never be destroyed.
